I think that was a completely fair try tbh, no idea why Moore blew the whistle.

Well done Leeds. You'd have to say Bentley is an England player in that form, remarkably.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Just because they know how it works, doesn't make it a good system 

But it does work. To deny it flies in the face of all the evidence.  Tonight's game alone shows that. As will tomorrow's and as will the GF itself....as long as Leeds lose.

Smith’s got Leeds going . Someone like Austin was going nowhere earlier in the year

At the start of the season, Austin and Sezer looked like they'd never played together before. Late-season runs seem to be a Leeds speciality these days.

Disagree

 

Coming top after 27 rounds is a phenomenal achievement 

Winning a couple of knockout games is less so 

That's not a valid comparison.

Congratulations Leeds

Leeds deserved the win but congratulating them is a bridge too far for me.😀

The Grand Final isnt going anywhere and nor should it. Leeds will take a good amount as will Saints or Salford who I actually think will sell similar amounts. 

It will be 60,000 plus and will be a great success. Pies havent been to SL Grand Final (with fans) now since 2018 and Leeds first for 5 years.

Good bit of dog in that Rhinos performance tonight. I didn't see that sort of performance coming.

Very listless and unsatisfactory home GF qualifier performance from Wigan. The absence of Cust, Farrell, and then French affected them a lot, but they seemed quite a bit off.

Bentley MOTM for me. His toughness spread throughout his team-mates.

Strange that the Rhinos have made another GF, finishing well under Rohan Smith.

Wigan just didn't fire. Empty end to the season for them.

A fun 150th anniversary season with plenty of memories and the Challenge Cup to show for it, but injuries to Farrell and Cust left the team lacking in ideas for the play offs. A massive improvement on the Adrian Lam years

That's a brilliant 5 minutes of tv, a coach massively emotional, players with fans, players with family. Losing coaches and players showing class. Magnificent television. 

Matt Peet is a class act, turned the interview from being Wigan failed to Leeds succeeding. Been really impressed by him this season.

Last season was dreadful for Wigan. They've been thoroughly enjoyable to watch this season and a great cup win. I'm not too disheartened at losing fair and square in a play off game.

Agree.  Some "easy" fixes...discipline, practicing goal kicking, finding why Bateman is lacking form.

But french is gone and Pearce Paul is going after one more year, Field after two. It actually feels like Wigan have a tiny window with this team before they have to rebuild.

French will be a big loss (if he goes, it's all gone quiet) but KPP less so.

Joking aside, Leuluai has always been a credit to his club and his country as a player and as a human. Wish him the best for his retirement from playing.

Don't you ever stop obsessing about crowds?

Enjoy the sport on the field 👍
